Question about Kodak EASYSHARE Printer Dock Thermal Photo
All of a sudden it will print only the bottom of the picture. Top portion is blank. It is like something is blocking the one side. I changed the cartridge, but that did not help. I used the camera on another printer and it worked fine. What does it mean when it says on the camera screen corrupt file?
Yep. That is the problem. That little white piece is broken. I took the unit apart to see exactly what eppelr and allante666 were talking about. It wasn't until I had the thing all torn up that I realized I could see the broken piece without taking anything apart. If you open the compartment where the ink cartridge goes, and look into the left side "tunnel", you will see a little white plastic peice that goes around a metal bar. It is just inside and up. Mine had a crack all the way across.
Thank you eppelr and allante666 for solving this. I was going NUTS trying to figure out what was wrong with this Kodak photo printer. I wasted money buying new ink. I should have checked here FIRST.

eppelr is correct, the small white cam on the right hand side at the top (internally) cracks and this allows it to come loose on its shaft and stops it from pressing the thermal head down onto the ink film on one side. If like me you have the top of the range bluetooth model its worth buying an old basic model off ebay for a tenner and robbing the shaft out of that. The mechanics are more or less the same and the shaft itself is identical, Doubt you would be able to buy the shaft seperate from Kodak, Thanks eppelr, I now have two working plus 3's.

I have a Easyshare photo printer 500- I have the same problem of only half the picture being printed. The white cam is cracked completely across. Is it possible to repair the cam or does a new one need to be installed?

I am having the same problem. The bottom half of the picture is printing but the top half is blank. No luck either.
